Peter Cantelon - Executive Director

Peter Cantelon brings to the CFDC a wealth of board and management experience in the fields of business development, marketing and communications. With no formal education in palaeontology Peter draws on his extensive background in journalism and research to act as a spokesperson for the CFDC (not to mention a lifelong enthusiasm for fossils and geology). His passion is people and this is brought to bear in every aspect of his role where he is focused on working with staff to grow the CFDC into a national and international centre for fossil exhibition, education and research. When he is not working he enjoys spending time with his family and writing.

Trevor Frost - Administrator

Having joined in June of 2011 as the Customer Service Representative, Trevor's broad range of technical skills contributes to the CFDC's role in the experiential tourism industry. Trevor has over 12 years of customer service experience in retail and 10 of those in retail management having worked and been part of a diverse market therein, giving him a unique set of skills to offer the CFDC including many forms of information technologies and computer repair. With this unique combination of skills, Trevor "rounds out the team", helping visitors more easily interact with the resident experts of the CFDC.

Victoria Markstrom - Field & Collection Manager
Victoria Markstrom

Victoria has always been very interested in palaeontology, specifically cretaceous vertebrates. She has gained experience in fossil preparation through volunteering as a Lab Technician at the Manitoba Museum. In 2014, she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in geology at the University of Manitoba. Victoria is thrilled to be working at the CFDC with such an amazing team.
